Flying Jets glad for summer practice opportunities

MONROE, Ind. (WPTA21) – A rebuilding Adams Central football team is reaping the benefits for the summer practice rules that did not exist when their coaches were playing.

It was not that long ago that football coaches could not coach their players until the first official day of practice in August.

Players then include the coaches of today, who are now allowed to work with their players most of the summer, with limits being no tackling to the ground and no full pads.

Adams Central coach Michael Mosser says it gives all teams a chance to be more prepared, so that the days of August two a days are mostly over, and the quality of high school football in Indiana has improved.

And Mosser says it is especially helpful to a team like his that is very young and that lost many key players from a team that won conference, sectional, and regional titles last fall.
